I kept them concealed because of a couple things I had to say that and I didn't want to get into the whole mess again with some people online.
The Eden Tree was all about the forbidden fruit, right? I just sent out links to these simple pages to friends, most of these friends knew I got doinked on a couple designs by other people. I figured I would put it up here and see if anyone finds any value in them.
They were also sort of the death knell of me writing about self-defense issues. If people want to believe that whatever they are into is going to save them above and beyond anything else, that's fine.
There was a time when I was a lot more altruistic. Most people thought I was just on a powertrip. There was some ego involved but I really did care about people taking some goofy or stupid martial arts class and learning something that would get them killed on the street.
I care about smart people who reject dogma, popular opinion, trends, fashions and conventional wisdom.
